    I blame myself for my weight (20 lb.) gain, I could have eaten less since I wasn't as active, but hey, food is good! And when boredom sets in...
    The ‘pandemic’ didn’t cause kids to be hungry, anxious or etc.

    Our *response* to the pandemic did all that.

    You see, it's the childish posts you make to me (and often others) that I very rarely respond to you.
    So, are you saying Trump (without the House or Senate's approval) should declare war on China because other nations are pussies?
    You see, your attempts at twisting things far out of proportion is annoying. Don't waste your time responding (I know you just can't
    refuse lol!), I ain't gonna read your silly infantile insults.
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    duh...can you read, much? the first POST IN THIS THREAD, THAT YOU ARE REPLYING TO!! not real swift are ya, sonny?

    here ya go, from the VERY FIRST POST-

    The non-profit organization Feeding America estimates that by the end of the year, more than 50 million American households could be food insecure -- that is, lacking consistent access to healthy food. That's one in six Americans, and includes some 17 million children -- one in every four American kids.

    A study from Northwestern University found that because of the pandemic, "food insecurity has doubled overall, and tripled among households with children." When children are food insecure, they face a host of ills. Their cognitive function is impaired. They are more likely to have asthma and anemia. And, of course, these children (and their parents) are more vulnerable to Covid-19.

    Sorry to offend your sensitive sensibilities again, Ms. Hoosier. In your zeal to come after me, you obviously didn't follow the conversation. After seeing this photo, I can see why.

    BTW, congrats on taking First Prize.

    Awesome. That's what I'm shooting for, so thanks for the feedback.

    No, I'm not saying that at all. I'm saying that the fucking morons who keep claiming China attacked the US with a virus so deadly it has killed over a quarter of a million Americans and given severe health problems to thousands more are idiots who can't find their asses with both hands.

    IF China really did attack us, then why hasn't Trump retaliated? Since Trump hasn't counter-attacked then either Trump is a gutless, incompetent pussy or the Chinese attack never happened. I'm saying the entire idea is just another Trump lie.

    So you didn't even read the OP. You reacted to the title with partisan nonsense. Stop wasting everyone's time and leave.

    Thank you for, like a few others on this forum, epitomizing why 70% of Americans are not Democrats. Your claims of tolerance and diversity ring hollow every time your post is entirely an ad hominem without any redeeming qualities. Sad.

    Meanwhile, back on topic, thanks to Trump's fucking up the COVID response, not only unemployment rate still about 7% with millions of Americans going hungry, but thousands will become sick or die.

    The President doesn't seem too worried -- and neither does Wall Street. The Dow went above 30,000 on Tuesday, and then Trump popped out before the cameras to crow about the market's success. It was brief -- just one minute -- but obscene. There is perhaps no greater example of the distortions wrought by the President's reliance on the markets as indicators for American financial well-being than this: A record-high Dow, while record numbers of Americans are hungry.

    The non-profit organization Feeding America estimates that by the end of the year, more than 50 million American households could be food insecure -- that is, lacking consistent access to healthy food.

    Many of us are grateful to have avoided the disease this year. But many others have struggled through sickness -- through damage to their bodies -- and also lost loved ones to Covid-19. It can be hard to feel too grateful for your own health when you know that more than a quarter million of your fellow citizens (maybe people that you knew or loved) have died of coronavirus, and that many of those deaths could have been prevented if our government had taken the threat more seriously and acted as necessary.

    If you want Guno we can send you our Thanksgiving table scraps if it will help you. Post your address and I'll have the wife scrape the plates into a garbage bag and send it off to you. Hey,.... might not be that bad all mixed up.

    Trump would have wanted to hold them responsible financially. Biden will go on another America apology tour, just as soon as he gets his head out of China's ass.
    That obnoxious prick Kerry is saying China will have to do more at COP26, they'll say it's your turn to kowtow, lo fan!
    .

    An estimated 61-80,000 Americans died and 800,000 were hospitalised in the 2017-18 flu season, including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!
